He allowed Conor to stand for several moments of the fight.
I know some of you guys don't like Conor and that's fine but this is not true, at all.

R3 all Khabib's takedown attempts were stuffed except for the end of the round when he tripped Conor up against the fence and he popped up immediately.

He didn't allow anything, he tried taking him down and couldn't, :lol:

And if we're really still gonna do this whole who did better between Conor/Dustin thing, at least Conor won a damn round.

As far as that guillotine goes, he needed to transition it to an anaconda choke and the fight would've been over.

Did a quick search and looks like Conor was won the 3rd before losing. 3/7 or TDs vs 7/8 in Dustin's case, so I might be 'rosey' on how Im rembering it all.

But it reminded more of how he was dealing with Iaquinta. The control looked different from a tenacity standpoint IMO. Looked that way possibly because it was easier

So apparently Dana is ready to offer Ferguson the Khabib fight, let's hope he gives him a fair offer and doesn't claim Tony wouldn't take the lowball offer. That and the Holloway-Volkanowski scrap would be a great way to cap off the year at 245.

Jorge is about that life. One of the Diazs should have fought him

I’m interested in Jorge vs Colby at some point. The past few months both have spoke openly about fighting each other

Jorge has positioned himself to skip Colby for the title shot even if Colby beats lawler. So that might not sit well with Colby and cause some friction
Playing out nicely

Not buying this Jorge/Colby **** at all

Also in regards to Tony/Khabib, Dana already said he'll make an offer to Tony, but that if Tony doesn't take the fight Conor would "make a lot of sense". So basically if Tony plays hardball at all in the negotiations it's over for his shot. Hopefully he just rolls with it and bets on himself because that fight can't wait anymore

The good thing is, I think Khabib has quite a bit of money now if he didn't before. There is no lure to fighting Conor at the moment so that negotiation tactic by Dana is rendered moot

I also think fans would do everything short of riot if Dana stalled Tony out

I feel that Khabib really does want Tony and won't sign an agreement with Conor. Hope that's correct

Yeah I think you may be right, Khabib sounded like he wasn't ****in with a Conor rematch at all when I last heard him talking about it, could definitely see him forcing Dana's hand. Which is kinda crazy considering Conor is the easier matchup on paper, on top of the fact that the Conor fight will pay more. Gotta respect that move if he forces the Tony fight

Most of these beefs aren’t real. Bet they coming up with what to say together. Conor Khabib was the only legit beef.

Uncle dana making a BMF belt :pimp: 1/1

No one tripping off a conor fight no more, beating conor today doesn’t hold the consolation it did while he was on his run.

Dood is just another striker now.

Tony x Khabib a done deal, just gotta wait and see when khabib willing to fight. It’s gotta be before the year is over or they gonna do another interm belt. Khabib be taking long *** breaks + Ramadan between fights so, we shall see.
